Wiskoski won a handful of minor titles in his career, but never won a major title in any of the major organizations, despite being one of the biggest villains in the American Wrestling Association (AWA).
Like a lot of the old-time wrestlers, Wiskoski was a total class act when I met him in Las Vegas several years ago. Despite heading into an event, he took a few minutes to chat with me and pose for a picture. He was all smiles and very friendly. It really was hard to imagine this nice guy being such a hated character. That tells me how good he was at playing the part.
Rose ran a wrestling school for a while. I am quite sure many of today's stars could take some cues from him. He really could get a crowd into the action.
